of the big deal, speaker boehner has suggested to sunset upper income tax cuts that tax code would be rewritten but last night he told president obama and called it off. he released a written statement that read in part, white house will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure. they suggested the disappointing jobs report in june was a game changeser. >> it ought to insent visa us to do a big package without raising taxes but we're hoping the president is not thinking he was as six months ago and he was making the arguments that raising taxes in the middle of this recession or slowdown, whatever you want to call it was a bad idea. >> reporter: secretary geithner says $2.5 trillion out of spending alone would unfairly impact the elderly and middle-class and also be bad for the economy and slow down job growth. >> heather: we'll see what happens. thank you very much. >> gregg: the clock is ticking for a debt limit deal to be struck and maybe faster than many people think. white house aids say a deal
run. and the jail release that has people across the u.s. and around the world asking what one big. i'm harris falkner, this is the fox report. where will she resurface? after a verdict that sprung her from jail prompted this backlash. in minutes, the elaborate message to make casey anthony disappear from public view. plus, the terrifying home invasion at this u.s. congressman's house, that leaves him face-to-face with an armed intruder. and that's it, construction triggering carmageddon along the 405 in southern california finishing hours ahead of schedule, but way too late for this driver. the details behind this high speed chase that hit almost every other major l.a. highway. first, casey anthony, out there somewhere tonight, living her life. right now, no word of where or how. >> we hate you!. >> harris: protesters among those who gathered outside the orlando jail when the florida acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter caylee was set free. casey left jail this morning, her attorney, jose baez at her side. warrening a pink t-shirt, blue jeans and sneakers, said quietly th
in all of baseball step on to the field and catch the big game. on the local fox station, after the fox report, tonight, on this channel, and before then we will talk about major league baseball and the predictions and highlights from the home run derby. what do you know, robbie put on a clinic with help from his old man, and that is coming up in a few minutes in "studio b" today. but, first from fox at 12:00 in phoenix and 3:00 on the east coast the investigators of the casey anthony murder trial speaking of the case and for the first te since last week's not guilty verdict. casey anthony is due to walk out of the facility on sunday in orange county. a jury found her not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter but today a detective who testified over and over and over again during the trial and was one of the first to respond when caylee "went missing," is stunned by all of her lies. >> i am still surprised she did not come off and she would not tell us the truth. that is all we were after if we knew the truth. >>shepard: the detective said that while he was surprised by the verdict,
. the indication that we're getting now is that this is a big deal, that this is going to be very large, and that everything is going to be on the table as far as bringing the corporate tax rates down, closing tax loopholes, but also cuts in entitlement programs, medicare, medicaid, possibly talking about social security and changing the way it works in the long term. these are big items that obviously could not get done legislatively before the august 2nd deadline. if there was some agreement reached between the leaders to raise the debt ceiling and agree to the framework by which they are going to tackle these big ticket items, that would be a significant thing. and it seemed like both parties were so far apart it will be interesting to see through the weekend if there can be some negotiated deal on a big framework. martha: it's interesting, bret because we've heard a little bit of what has come out of the preliminary discussions that vice president biden was part of. it seemed as though in those discussions they would talk big dollar figures although they wouldn't talk about specific
, and it cracks. what happens is the road actually buckles or explodes, as they say, which leads to those big, major potholes. that causes traffic jams, it also leads to city budgets being drained because of the work crews. it's not just the roads. you look at some of the homes. again, the ground dries up, no rain to moisten it, and what happens is it cracks. and when the ground cracks, your home settles. when your home settles, the foundation -- as you can see there -- cracks. it is a major, major concern. listen to this. >> we're just noticing them all over the outside of our house. i am worried. um, i don't know what to do, i mean, do i keep my hose on or my sprinkler on? >> reporter: when the temperatures stay in the 90s for extended period of times, the -- periods of time, the problem for farmers is trying to keep their animals and plants cool, and it's almost impossible, so you have many animals that are dying. that leads to rising food prices. listen to one farmer. >> those birds were full size, current goes off, i've got less than five minutes to get fans running. and if it fries some
obama says he's not giving up. he didn't come to this town to do little things, he came to do big things. he wants to do the largest possible deal that's going to do the most for the economy. >> there is a lack of confidence whether these political leaders will have the guts to stand up. >> and that was white house chief of staff william daily and treasury secretary timothy geithner from earlier. geithner summing it up in this question, are the electoral leadership in washington able to come together and solve the many problems we have as a country? >> pretty much what everybody wants to know is the time to deal with our nation's debt is ticking down again. let' go live to the white house, and wendell goal ser there. what do we expect to come out of tonight's talks? >> well, harris, no one expects the final deal to come out of tonight's talks. the president had asked the democrat and republican leaders if the house and senate could come tonight's meeting with their bottom line and he talked on the phone with house speaker john boehner last night after boehner decided to back away from ta
of the united states of america. and the craziest part -- >> the u.n. wants to spend a big chunk of that money on things that have nothing to do with climate change in third world countries. stuart varney is here to weigh in on this. so where does this come from? where does the money come from and where would they like to see it go? >> where do you want to start on this one? this shows you how totally out of wack the global warming community is with american public opinion. what the u.n. says is this -- we need $1.9 trillion each and every year for 40 years in order to solve the climate problem worldwide and to reduce poverty and hunger worldwide. so they're bringing in poverty and hunger along with climate change. >> it's not all green. it's poverty, hunger and everything else. >> but you cannot eradicate poverty and hunger without going green because if you don't go green, you increase poverty and hunger. you got it? >> so where is this money expected to come from and how much is coming from the united states? >> ok, we contribute 22% of the united nations budget so theoretically, if this
at this hour? that is the big question that people want the answer to. the lawyers were successful disguising where she went in the overnight hours. even the press not able to keep up with her. cameras shooting this video of casey anthony walking out of the front doors of the orange county jail at 12:11. wearing pink me low shirt, hair in a bun and the primary defense attorney jose baez right by her side. they got in a motorcade, a gray suburban, a cream colored tahoe and white follow-car and drove directly from the location to a bank of of america building in downtown orlando, not far from here, where her other attorney has an office. they went in covered parking garage and pulled a bait and switch. the suv never emerged from the parking garage, but others cars did and it's not clear which one that casey anthony was in. we can tell you around the same time there was police activity across town at a private airport. a private plane was fuelled up and ready to go on the runway, but nobody saw casey anthony boarding the aircraft. officials telling us it was scheduled to carry golfers vacationin
to lead, they want them to come to washington and take care of the big issues that confront us right now, one is definitely the debt ceiling, the other is the debt. i tell you this. what they want is for us to take care of these big issues in a way that will allow you to work within our physical means, but at the same time provide them with the opportunities that they need for the future. this back and forth, these battling press conferences day to day, the ongoing conversations that they've been having, folks watching this at home have been terribly frustrated. my hope is we can get to a resolution on this very quickly. alisyn: sure, obviously everybody wants a resolution. americans are frustrated: doesn't it put the democrats in a bit of an untenable position to say, we are actually against a balanced budget? >> i think we need to clarify, democrats are not against the balanced budget. they are calling for a shared sacrifice. and the challenge is during the entire conversations about the debt ceiling, the debt and the deficit, what you've seen are democrats putting things on the line,
say the tea party could be a big winner here in -- >> there is bright lights that shown through. there is a case of hobitry. but there are people who are interested in governing and can get it done. one is ran paul in the senate. he and mitch mcconnel have been bad cop and battered cop pummeling hare reid making it clear they are not unreasonable. that created pressure for harry reid . in the house. allen west who are hardcore tea party, andine though they opposed the boehner deal gave him the yes vote he needed to get back in the negotiating ring. they are willing to be pragmatic to get it better for themselves. >> again, we don't know, if we don't know if it will come together yet. there is a lot of folks to be counted in the senate and house. you wrote many times that washington is the big loser. everybody is saying what is going on up there? but as far as others, besides this place, anyone stand out? >> believers in stimulus. believers in demand side economics. the columnist from the new york times, they took a bad beating in all of this because the president walked away fro
: the last 48 hours this investigation has gone from about this big to this big. some officials may have already been caught lying. not only that, now we're told u.s. wasn't just helping send guns to mexico, taxpayers paid for some of those guns. and more than one federal agency knew about it. that's the latest in the scandal we know as fast and furious. according to sources an f.b.i. informant allegedly used taxpayer money to buy guns on behalf of the cartels, the f.b.i. knew it, they allowed it to happen and they failed to tell congress or the agency that was investigating him, causing that agency, the atf to spend two years, thousands of man-hours and millions of dollars pursuing information the f.b.i. already had about a man, the atf would never be allowed to arrest because he worked for the f.b.i. this information was confirmed this week sources say by the acting atf director ken nelson who met secretly on july 4th with congressman darrell issa and senator charles grassley. nelson who is going to be the fall guy in this scandal dropped a few bombs in his deposition indicating others
the economy still in big trouble. look at this. a slowdown in hire anything june pushing the unemployment rate now to 9.2%. only 18,000 net new jobs were added to the work force last month. at least 250,000 jobs are needed per month to drive the unemployment rate down significantly. and get this, since president obama took office we've seen the economy lose two and a half million jobs. president obama assuring americans there is a reason the numbers are so disappointing. listen to this. >> the sooner that the markets know that the debt limit ceiling will have been raised and that we have a serious plan to deal with our debt and deficit, the sooner that we give our businesses the certainty that they will need in order to make additional investments to grow and hire, and we'll provide more confidence to the rest of the world as well so that they are committed to investing in america. >> molly henneberg live for us at the white house with more on the president's reaction. molly? >> hi, gretchen. clearly not the type of monthly jobs report any president wants to see. unemployment up for the third
quickly. that's still four or five years away and maybe deep space beyond. that's where the big questions are, whether we're going to follow through on that promise. >> you just described to us earlier how this is a record breaking crowd there at the kennedy space center. tell us what happened when the shuttle landed. >> for the first time in my coverage of the space shuttle landings, there was a huge round of applause as it landed. a lot of excitement. and there certainly is the sense of wow, this is really it. this is the very final time we're going to see this down. it's a little bit of a drag that it was predawn. it's really hard to see. usually see the shuttle approaching the runway because the lighting change on the runway lights being obscured by the shuttle coming in but then come flying behind us on the runway with a big parachute out dragging it down to a slower speed but certainly there was a lot of pride, i think, here watching this end of an era and, of course, you know, we had the big private commercial taxi service you mentioned, tom, in october, i believe, the big falcon l
a lot. he want as big deal. will he and the president find a compromise? guess who is back? nancy pelosi, your favorite friend, the foam house speaker is back at the table and is in open the debt talks and wants to point the fingers at ... guess who? >> day one of 85 of the republican majority in the congress and we have not seen one jobs bill come to the floor. >>dave: day 185. we expect the republican congress to create jobs in less than a year yet the democrats had four years in control of congress and did what for jobs? >> and the day of fast tush around in the media and all at, quick response from romney about her comments. listen to this. uncertainty is probably the one thing, a heck of a problem. is my company going to be here? it is tough. things have to change. have to change. >>dave: that ad in response to comments early this week, from the senior advisor to president obama who said people will not vote based on the unemployment rate and jobs numbers but based on their situation. well, their situation is the unemployment rate. it is the jobs numbers. that is their reality. so,
a piece of legislation, so stay tuned. bill: we shall. it will be a big deal come next week. jason chaffetz, thank you, out of utah. martha: another day at the office, really. one group of workers, union workers, just sort of, you know, having a joke, a little smoke, booze, at the lunch hour. you know? the same kind of stuff we do around here, bill. one reporter got up close and personal. this is fascinating. bill: they don't have us on camera, though. martha: thank goodness! bill: team usa, world cup final, sunday at 2:00, what a day this was, abby wombach, she's like a superhero. martha: love her. bill: that header put her one up, team usa will play japan for all the marbles. martha: love it. bill: sunday afternoon. go usa! back in a moment. bill: some stories developing in "america's newsroom", there is new violence erupting in pakistan, gunmen in the streets of karachi, opening fire, leaving seven dead and more than two dozen injured. >>> dozens of suspects connected to the mexican mafia in custody after a huge gang raid in california. the mexican mafia, considered the oldest a
of a sudden have a favorable reception? >> well, look, it's a compromise. you've got big cuts, and you've got extra revenue. so it is a compromise, and you're running out of time. that august 2nd deadline is very, very close and to get this plan how you've got to move quickly because you've got to legislate, pass, vote, implement. bill: can they do that in the time they have lift? >> frankly, bill, it's doubtful. you think you can write the tax code in a couple of days? the highly unlikely. but you can see how republicans would probably go for reducing tax rates. it's hard for me to see how democrats could go for reducing tax rates. bill: now, before we fish here, though, this cut, cap and balance thing that passed in the house, that was all the talk over the past week. would that survive a senate vote or, ultimately, is it vetoed by the white house? >> i've not heard anybody who has said it will pass in the senate. that's, essentially, a symbolic move, and it's dead as of now. that's why there's so such attention on this gang of six plan. bill: we shall see. stuart, we'll see you on fox busi
october 14, 2008. the big question tonight, will tonight be her last night sleeping there? earlier today, inmates helped set up barricades outside of the jail just in case big crowds show up there tomorrow. if the judge continues his hardline stance exhibited during the trial he could take into account the time already served and give her the full maximum four years for the four counts, the convictions for lying to the cops so she could still have two years left to serve. >> shepard: what about money? could the judge force casey anthony to pay back the tax money they spent on really the lies of three years ago? >> that is absolutely what we expect. judge belvin perry to perhaps apply and force casey anthony to pay that back. the state's attorney office confirming they are figuring out the financial figures to present to the judge. and tim mil miller from texas equisearch also expressed filing a civil suit against casey anthony because they spent $100,000 in the fall, bypassing doing other searches for other really missing children to focus in orlando on finding caylee. >> shepard: we saw
. there are a lot of breaking details regarding the dates and there could be a big face injected into it as well. we'll tell you about it shortly. big blowup in washington that everybody is talking about. >> clayton in for brian today. good to have you. headlines for you first. there are no leads this morning on who is responsible for a deadly triple bombing in mumbai, india that killed 17 people. the simultaneous bombings in three separate neighborhoods described as a coordinated terror attack. 131 other people are hurt. 23 critically. investigators believe it may be revenge for police pressure on home grown terrorists. this morning, four people are dead after a homicide bomber attacked a memorial service for the half brother of afghanistan president hamid karzai. 15 others were hurt in this attack on a kandahar mosque. wally karzai was assassinated on tuesday. he was shot at close range, apparently by a confidant. the taliban has claimed responsibility for his murder. thousands paid their respects for an 8-year-old boy murdered in his brooklyn, new york, neighborhood. he went missing monday on his
. the president came out and said republicans, you have to do a big deal and by the way, if you are thinking about an interim plan, forget it, i'm not going to do it. >> i found it interesting because he basically said both sides had to get used to some sacrifice. brian, you and i had the debate yesterday on radio whether or not he would have that particular tone. but that's what he said. i found it interesting he said we should attack this right now, although a month ago he wasn't even involved in these talks. you have to ask him why the sudden urgency now. the other question is is that august 2nd deadline, could tim geithner just push that date a little bit more down the road or is that hard and firm? >> well, here is the -- >> it's not going to get easier, it's going to get harder. we might as well do it now. pull off the bandaid, eat our peas. now is the time to do it. if not now, when? i'm prepared to take on significant heat from my party to get something done. and i expect the other side should be willing to do the same thing if they mean what they say. >> it's amazing. yesterday the presid
, waiting outside the jail as they ducked away into a waiting suv. the big question is where is casey anthony hiding. live at orlando,s from where caylee's remains were found. walk us through the release last night. >> reporter: i want to share brand-new information coming into fox news channel from our producer on the ground, one of many that have been working this case. kathleen rochelle. she got off the phone with mark lipman, the attorney that represents george and cindy anthony, they told -- their attorney said basically jose baez and texted them she was safe but they were at home watching the release on television. a relief that happened like clockwork at 11 past midnight according to the clock on the wall at orange county jail. take a look at the video. company anthony wearing a pink polo shirt. she was given $500 in cash, money that remained in her inmate account. a lost which donations from the public that poured in while she was incarcerated. three selected journalists captured the moment the world wanted to see, a moment that lasted a little more than ten seconds. listen. >
's the big question, right? >> looking at the influence of the freshmen today, in general they believe and have very involved local voters to back them up that they were elected in 2010 with a mission to, reign in big government, specifically big government spending, and this debt ceiling debate fits right into that. here's more from one freshman tea partier. >> it would allow the debt ceiling to go up, but only if we had significant cuts, statutory caps and balanced budget amendment and there's a growing movement with that. we met with leadership, we met with majority leader eric cantor and were trying to impress upon them that we need to be for something as republicans, we need to define what we're for. >> senator paul says this is a fight, quote, too important to give up. jon. jon: what kind of influence do the new members have, though? >> well, republicans are in the minority and the senate, so less there, but in the house they're in the majority and tea partiers, or those who agree with the tea party on fiscal issues, among the 87 how freshmen have not been shy about staking their
speaker john boehner today. not going for a big huge deal now. this is part of what chuck schumer had to say -- >> shannon: your response? >> i suspect that is more of the grand politics that you hear playing out there. because it was never put on the table. the kind of reform that john boehner has been asking for, the kind of reform i'm talking about. what was put on the table was again, tax hikes on the wealthy. so that we can do less spending reduction. we've got to get out of that paradigm. we've got to get out of the politics. some of the politics poll really well. one of the problem we're having now is pollsters are at full employment. and politicians are following what they are telling them. it's telling them on the one hand don't put social security or medicare on the table. don't talk about those things. on the other hand, just talk about taxing the rich. you will be fine. but that doesn't help us get to a solution. >> shannon: we certainly hope that you find one. we know you are busy not only with the gang of six or five or whatever it currently stands to be but with everyth
. the big question, though, is for the prosecution team, what did they do potentially wrong here, because they were certainly very confident in their case. here is lamar lawson. >> we're disappointed with the verdict today and surprised, because we know the facts, and we put in absolutely every piece of evidence that existed. our attorney did an exemplary job. i'm proud of them and i stand by their work. i never, ever criticize a jury. theirs is the task of deciding what to believe. >> reporter: the prosecutor also said that what really hampered the case was the frequent that -- fact that the decomposition, the six months it took to find caylee's remains, really hampered the prosecution because they lost so much crime scene evidence, fingerprints, perhaps they may have found on the duct tape and the laundry bag, phil. -- bill. bill: fel keating, thank you. alisyn has more. alisyn: we need to talk more about these jurors. they left immediately after the reading. remember this was after six weeks of being sequestered and finish of -- none of them wanted to talk about their momentous decisio
with fake documents to get real passports and then come to the u.s. and a big part of the problem is that countries aren't sharing information with each other. part of this government accountability office report says "even when countries have terrorist screening information, they may not have reciprocal relationships to share such information or other traveler information such as passenger airline lists with other countries to limit the ability of preventing travel of known or suspected terrorists." even though a passport can't kill someone, it can help a bad guy get in position to do some serious damage. >> travel documents are the same as weapons to terrorists. they can't carry out their plots without them. with our partners, and again, some of that is out of our control. we're closer to a c. >> and this gao report deals heavily with the breakdown, basically in communication with other countries. here at home, though, we are not perfect because since november 2001, just a few weeks after 9/11, there have been 25,000 security breaches at u.s. airports. that's about seven a day a
of our kids have big hearts. i think he just felt sort for her. jail house records show casey anthony's account has about $500 in it nearly half of which was deposited afr the jury acquitted casey anthony of killing her daughter caylee. harris? >> harris: wow, i understand that along with cash she is also getting the flip side of that death threats from people out there. >> yes. the death threats still due to come in and also they are going towards members of her defense team, that according to cheney mason whom i spoke with on the phone. he said when she finally goes free on sunday where casey anthony goes as a free woman will absolutely remain a top secret. >> cannot tell you where she is going to end up because of the mentality of some of the public and the persistence of the lynch mob out there, we wouldn't tell anybody any time, period where she is going to be is some place safe. >> somewhere in the u.s.? >> i'm not going to tell you that either. somewhere on planet earth. >> as far as casey anthony perhaps staying at mr. maven's house, he laughed at that and said not true. harri
,000 in a nice check, here you go. >> look, whenever you've got a big government give away of real money, a billion dollars you'll have economic questions and some moral problems as well. for example, who gets the money and who decides who gets the money? the criticism would be that maybe those people, they've been mow lit tpoliticized, and the pt is buying folks with money. two people, equal, both in trouble on the mortgage, one gets help, another doesn't get help, that is moral hazard, you have to ask that question as well. where does the money come from? every dollar that our government shells out, 40-cents of it has to be borrowed from somebody else because we don't have all that money, we are borrowing 40-cents on the dollar. is that moral to be shelling out a billion, and borrowing 400 million to do it? martha: the calculation there has to be on the part of the administration that it's even worth it for us to go deeper into debt for that 40-cents per dollar, because bailing out these individuals who can't stay in their home is going to ultimately help, you know, sort of prop up the
today's astronauts did to get set for a mighty big flight. >> two stager... command in the center. shepard: all as we prepare for sts 135, the final mission. shepard: and good morning again from kennedy space center, along the space coast in florida, and, right now we're waiting for the grand finale of the american space shuttle odyssey. we have just gotten word from forecasters at nasa the last few minutes they are cautiously optimistic that the weather may hold, and there was just a 30% chance of acceptable weather and we're told we're on target for an 11:26 lift off for the international space station. now there's a lot of cloud but the ceiling is high and the worry was there would be spotty showers here and there and the shuttle cannot take that. the rain could damage heat shields and would be difficult to return should it go into the atmosphere, an estimated 750,000 people have come here to watch this happen and a live look at the space shuttle and the four american astronauts preparing for this historic mission. a 12-day voyage, set to end when atlantis returns to earth on t
, some real big news, actually, because speaker boehner, it seems, may have a plan that will come to fruition, before 4 p.m. this afternoon so that the asian markets aren't rattled and it will involve sort of a two pronged approach. >> yeah, but the most important part of the two step process clayton mentioned there's going to be a short-term extension involved and the democrats have objected to that, as you know, from the very beginning, the president, nancy pelosi, harry reid all three last night reiterating they will not support a short-term extension. so it appears we are playing with some serious fire on this sunday. >> what does john boehner do, comes up and hands over the paper work, they immediately say no. listen to this, thises what mitch mcconnell has to say about this. there is bipartisan agreement on the need to prevent fault and given the unprecedented size of the debt ceiling increase, the president is requesting, this is not an easy process. and the effort to prevent default while substantially reducing washington spending will continue. >> of course, all of the co
a big misunderstanding. the 18-year-old placed what was feared to be a bomb near the beam structure in chicago's millennium park. it wasn't a bomb. it was two bricks duct taped together with wires hanging out of it, a prop from a sci-fi costume he wore to a convention. he was charged with disorderly conduct. a scare for defense secretary leon panetta. three rockets slammed into baghdad's green zone on day two of his visit there. the secretary is fine and no one else was hurt. panetta flew to baghdad from afghan t afghanistan and he's meeting with leaders there and meeting with u.s. troops. early wake-up call on the shuttle atlantis. >> ♪ i get knocked down i get back up again i get knocked down i get back up again ♪ >> seems like i just heard it on the radio yesterday. waking up to the song and today they will be supplying a supply module on the outside of the international space station using a robotic arm and they'll prepare for a space walk tomorrow. meantime, nasa keeping a close eye on some space degree that could come dangerously close to the space station. the duke and d
to be factored in as one big lie, the judge disagreed, jon. >> and the state also wants money from casey anthony when this is all over, right? >> hundreds of hundreds of thousands of dollars is my estimate is what could be levied against casey anthony, not only the cost for the six-month investigation, the searching, the following up of leaders, the interviewing, the trying to track down all of these imaginary people, plus the prosecution which has been quite costly over the past 2 1/2 to three years as they had to pay for a lot of lab tests, a lot of investigators, so the judge is going to rule on that financial burden that casey anthony is likely to be levied in about 30 days from now, and for the moment, though, bottom line, casey anthony is heading back to the orange county jail. jon: a lot of people thought the saga could effectively end today. it goes on. phil keating, from orlando, thanks. alisyn: fox news is america's election headquarters, congresswoman michelle bachmann is stepping up her campaign for president, releasing a new television ad in iowa today, the minnesota congresswoman u
are nowhere near that. that's a big gap between 18,000 and 250, i don't need to tell you. so president obama since he took office, we have seen the economy lose two and a half million jobs. that's a fact. that's just the raw numbers that are out there. so there's a lot of questions about what kind of impact the economy will have on president obama's re-election hopes. take a listen to how the treasury secretary, tim geithner, responded to that question about the president's economic record. listen to this. >> you talk about what's good for the economy, a lot of this discussion about debt is, ultimately, to free up space for jobs to be created. it's not happening. people are still out of work. here's the charter of the president's economic record, this is based on government information, treasury department, u.s. bureau of labor stats. unemployment, 7.3% on inauguration date, up to 9.2% with the latest report, you see the debt figures up 35% -- >> let me just say, that's a ridiculous table. martha: that is a ridiculous table. we're going to talk about that. is it? we've got a fair and balance
-- gretchen: you're saying it was good news that eric holder decided to drop the other charges. the big argument from the right was when you decide to criminal until lee prosecute your agents that work for the cia it pretty much handcuffs their ability to do their job. >> if they acted within the advice of the office of legal counsel they've got a great defense there and i think that the pragmatic concerns won out as i said. moving forward with the two cases that we have, we have clear evidence of detainee abuse where the detainee in afghanistan was khaeupbdz to a a concrete die and basically died from exposure. we have one detainee who died in prison in iraq who may have been beaten to death. it's unclear. the folks that were involved in the inch tier tkpwaeugs and the treatment, they'll have a fair trial, a presumption of innocence, so, you know, the system is going to work, i think. gretchen: it's interesting because some of those enhanced terror tactics they haven't been in practice since 2007 is my understanding when president bush took those particular controversial techniques, i
